Inspiration MemorialsStonemasons and Memorials

Having a memorial is a way of saying ‘you are gone, but not forgotten’. It can be somewhere to go to feel closer to the person, a place to gather and remember. Memorials come in all shapes and sizes, from simple marker plates or plaques to unique handcrafted headstones, inscribed benches, trees or even buildings. Deciding on the right memorial can take time and we hope that the ideas below will help this choice.
